Totally agree with this, it does not make sense to not be able to call member functions on literals!.

Why would this be deferred, literal additions is essential, it's like building this half way again.

Railo/Lucee allow this. ACF should allow it too. Many other languages also allow member functions to be called on literals -- including Java!

Hi Adobe, Are you only fixing this for string literals, or also for struct and array literals? The title of this ticket is "Member functions cannot be called on literals", so should include any literal. Can you please clarify so that we know what to expect? Or if we need to file a separate ticket for each literal type? Thanks!, -Aaron

Aaron, ColdFusion 2018 will include support for string literals. We will be exploring the possibility of supporting array and struct literals in a future release. -Immanuel

Hi Immanuel, Thanks very much for clarifying! I've logged CF-4202071 for remaining literals (struct/array - and query, if added). Thanks!, -Aaron
